One of my favorite cookbooks that I use regularly! Loaded with lots of great recipes to try.

Oh my fucking god, I love these cookbooks. They take recipes from, like, a 1980s call-in radio show, or something, and bind and print and put them forward, untested, with no comments, no advice, and almost no organization. It’s glorious! There is something so female about it, and I love it. Stephanie, from Chagrin Falls, did you put Manwich sauce in your kidney beans, *and* Velveeta, *and* hot sauce? A little liquid smoke? Fuck Yeah You Did, Sister, and I love you for it.

A revised and updated version with 700 recipes. This version has more "words of wisdom" interspersed with the recipes and a few more recipes. If you haven't read the earlier versions, just read this one. ...more

Skimmed through it a couple of times. A LOT of canned or processed food is required to do nearly all of these recipes. Likewise, ground beef seems to be a huge staple and I’m not big of that either. Lastly, It says 700 recipes but so many of them are one ingredient off from being the same.

A lot of the recipes seem to be for slow cooker smaller than 6 qt.

Recommending this kitchen essential is easy for me. It’s a New York Times Bestseller, and it’s no wonder. I will never get rid of this cookbook! It’s been updated since I bought this on a whim at Sam’s Club for a little more than $10.00. During a very busy stage in life with little time for meal preparation, my slow cooker was a life-saver, and not just for Sunday dinners but for every occasion. When the day is going to be a busy one, a crockpot meal

I have used the original "Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook" for years. It is one of the most used cookbooks in my kitchen library. I jumped at the chance to be able to review the "Revised and Updated" version, because the first was a great cookbook. I was a little concerned, as I thought that the revisions would end up removing recipes or changing them to a more "healthy" and possibly less flavorful versions of those that made the original great.

The "Revised and Updated" version is definitely worth

From my blog...[return]As soon as I discovered my all-time favourite, foolproof cookbook was being released in a revised and updated version I had to have it! The Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook by Phyllis Pellman Good is now even better than before, and personally I did not think it could get better. The revised and updated version contains the same recipes my family loves with an additional 100 recipes totaling 700 Slow Cooker recipes for those who love their crock-pots. Anyone who knows me is f ...more

I feel like I'm blaspheming something universally beloved but....bleh. I'm not militantly anti-processed-food, but there's something processed in almost every recipe, from the ever-present condensed soup to a disturbing amount of recipes calling for a can of pop. I mean, there's a baked beans recipe that calls for...a can of baked beans. And a queso dip recipe that calls for...condensed cheese soup and a jar of salsa (why not just buy a jar of queso dip?). So it's not to my taste, but on a more ...more

Tons of recipes for just about any dish or ingredient you could envision. With three recipes to a page, this book is packed. The author also includes tips, equivalent measurements and substitute ingredients. None of these recipes are fancy or gourmet, but all are easy and meals that everyday people would enjoy. A great book to start with, or just to revitalize your current crock pot recipes.

As is my request of all cookbooks, I would have loved a spiral binding and more photos! This would be a gr

I love this cookbook! It was a gift for Christmas, and my aunt says it is her slow cook bible (and she is definitely the slow cooker queen!) I have made four recipes from it, and I must say I love it already! You can easily alter the recipes listed or just follow the instructions. And there are lots of varieties for all of your favorite foods. Also, there are vegetarian sections which I love! I'm going to try the french onion soup this weekend. Slow cookers are the way to go when you know you'll ...more

Tons of quick and easy recipes but not many on my diet plan. Need more without cream soup, potatoes & rice. I guess it did quick crockpot recipes not healthy ones.

A good cookbook but there's a lot of overlap of recipes with all the other Fix it and Forget it books.

Buy the Big Fix it and Forget it book.
